I would suggest KDE Neon. It is Ubuntu based, and it is Qt, which means that your Qt apps will look nice. I prefer it over OpenSuse cause I get used to Ubuntu, it is well supported, almost every app has ppa or deb. Plasma UI looks great, and it is highly customisable.

I do not think that you can sell image without GI nowdays on archviz market, even you do it perfectly. It is not point to get fast, noiseless render, it needs to look good too. Mantra is not built for archviz, especially not for freelancer or smaller studios, its strength lives in different realm.

One thing I would like to see in Mantra is straightforward tonemaping option, like Filmic or Reinhard RGB, and option of using 3dl or cube LUT formats.

Attached image is tonemaped with Filmic.

Changed on post above image with more contrast. Trick is in area ligts. They help a lot with noise, so add them as bounce lights, at strategic locations. ALso you can make higher GI intensity, 3-4.
